they are looking at a cuban newspaper from last thursday. >>> president obama returns to washington tonight following a presidents' day weekend golf vacation in florida. yesterday's for some was a memorable one, since one of the four was tiger woods. that's a first for both men. the presidential golf outing is a long-time tradition. so is the desire to stay out of camera range, most of the time. though this might be a little different. nbc's andrea mitchell is with us tonight from washington with more. andrea, good evening. >> good evening, brian. the president's downtime is very special time. the white house also has made a commitment to have a small group of reporters following him everywhere he goes. all that blew up this weekend in florida when white house reporters were locked out of an exclusive golf club and only found out that the world's most powerful man was playing a round with the world's most famous golfer on twitter from the golf channel. when fdr died in warm springs, georgia in 1945, white house reporters were in washington. when president eisenhower had his first heart atta

live for us in washington. what's the latest? >> hi, jamie, hi, kelly. president obama is trying to turn up the heat on republicans, saying all it would take is a quote, little compromise to avoid those 85 billion dollars in spending cuts. the president wants more tax hikes included in any kind of compromise, and posed these questions to republicans who only want spending cuts. >> are republicans in congress willing to let these fall on our kids' schools and mental health care just to prevent tax loopholes. are they willing to slash, because they refuse tax cuts for big oil companies, seriously prepared to put more pain on the middle class because they refuse to put more on those at the top. and they say that americans have been hit with tax increases the beginning of this year when the g.o.p. agreed to go along with the president and allow certain bush era tax cuts to expire. and now republicans say they're ready to compromise on where and how the federal spending is cut, but they don't want more tax hikes and they're challenging the president to explain why he isn't reaching ou

reasonable in come parson. the difference is that obama wants to avoid them. this is in the washington examiner. a conservative paper. >> yeah, exactly right. i read the speaker's op erksz d in the journal. it was quite a disz aster for him. the sequester is something that has to be avoided at all costs. and both you and i agree on that. and then the second half says here are all the reasons why we'll refuse to compromise with the president on it. you can't say this is a disaster for the nation u being an elected public official who presumably comes to washington not to generate disasters and self-inflicted wounds, but to actually solve problems that americans know have to close the steel. and i think this is going to play very badly for republicans because, again, in the public consciousness, it's recognized that one side is willing to compromise and one side is stone walling. >> u no, on the other hand, rand paul insists that the cuts aren't deep enough. listen to rand paul. >> i voted against is sequester because i didn't think it was enough. it's a slow down in the rate of dwrout.

by barack obama because no matter how badly he might have it with congress, lincoln had it worse. i mean the country just being ripped apart. >> u now, a survey came back saying number one was lincoln, two, washington, three, f.d.r., four, teddy roosevelt, five, truman. now, what do all of these presidents have in common? and what does that tell us about where president obama might ultimately end up? >> all of them have a huge amount of self k69s. they believe in their own gain. you also have to communicate well with the exception of true man, who wasn't that good with media, you know, theodore ro roosevelt was extremely good with cartoonists and novelists and poets. lincoln, writing such eloquent pieces as, you know, the gettysburg address, able to communicate the emotions of the time to the american people. washington was different because he was first: wae wa came in and didn't know what foreign policy he should be. should he be doing business with britain? he didn't know how to organize government. that's why washington usually follows lincoln as number two. >> now, even republicans

for the senate. conservatives see a big opportunity. they took a look at this front page story in the washington times today. quote, obama agenda is risky for red state democrats. guy cecil has good news for democrats. he pulled a rabbit, rather a donkey, out of his hat last year when the democrats gained seats. actually gained seats in a year that looked like a sure loser for democrats. that's his job, to pull off another miracle and hang onto the senate. maggie haberman is at politico, a senior politico reporter. this is important, although it's a year and a half off, people want to know how obama is going to make it. is he going to put points on the board, immigration reform, something on gun safety. he likes to talk about himself being a center left version i think of a ronald reagan, meaning he wants to get into the history books. the question is can he do it with a republican house? probably not. he's hoping to switch it. let's talk about the senate, however. a lot of people in the democratic party are lucky to be in the senate because they don't match up with the way those states vote in

: and there is still finger-pointing over whose idea this was in the first place. in a "washington post" op-ed, bob woodward claims it came directly from the white house, writing, "obama personally approved the plan." white house offials have argued that the majority of house republicans voted to approve the sequester. as for furloughs, government officials say the majority of them won't take effect for about a month. >> for more on how all this is playing out we're joined by cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. if we get to friday, they don't make a deal, do is they cuts all play out at once or does it transpire over a series of weeks or months? >> they'll play out for a while, maybe not for a long while. even though body parties seem willing to let the sequester go into effect there's a lot not to like for both sides. if we see the effects like longer air travel delays you're going to see increasing pressure from their constituents to negotiate some sort of alternative. >> for the last couple of years we've heard about the so-called grand bargain. is that just a dream or is it some
